Hello Bulat,

I think that builders/distributers use "make binary-dist" to
make binary distribution normally.

"make binary-dist" calls prep-bin-dist-mingw to make Windows friendly
distribution now.

And before this change, we use "prep-bin-dist-mingw" explicitly to
make Windows friendly distro.

So I sent follow previous message. Because leaving incorrect
prep-bin-dist-mingw lack some files that is important C++
for compilation.

OK, builders is important role to make windows distro.
But from above reasons, I think prep-bin-dist-mingw (this change
"make binary-dist" behavior, not to change ghc behavior) also important
role to make windows distribution.
